For everyone who was bummed out about having to miss the mighty Lamb of God on this year’s The Metal Tour of the Year, fear not! The great and powerful Lamb of God have announced a massive, worldwide streaming event that will offer fans first-time-ever live performances of the band’s critically acclaimed new album, Lamb of God.
On top of that the band will also be performing their landmark, 2004 album Ashes of the Wake. Both albums will be performed live, in their entirety in the band’s hometown of Richmond, VA. As standalone ticketed events, these performances will be Lamb of God’s only chance to perform these songs for fans this year – and the band are ready to deliver to the highest degree.
The first stream, scheduled for Friday, September 18, will see the band perform songs from their latest self-titled album, released June 19 via Epic Records, live for the very first time. For the second stream, on Friday, September 25, the band will perform the ground-breaking RIAA certified Gold album, Ashes of the Wake, in its entirety for the first time ever. Both sets will feature encores, including fan favorites, as well as songs that haven’t been performed in years.
The streams are scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT on their respective days. Livestream tickets will be $15 per show or a limited time bundle of $20 for both shows and are on-sale now at the band’s official webpage. Streams will be available to watch video-on-demand through 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sunday for fans who purchase a ticket. Additionally, the band will be offering ticket and limited merch bundles plus an exclusive merchandise store available only to ticket holders during the stream.
A pre-show is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. PDT before each stream, hosted by Jose Mangin. It will be featuring exclusive interviews with members of the band and opening sets from Bleed From Within (September 18) and Whitechapel (September 25). Bleed From Within will be airing a brand new, full production set and Whitechapel will air their memorable, 2014 hometown performance from Knoxville, TN.
